Guys, some of you need a cold shower! Anyway, some clarity. Some people seem to get confused about T's tarrifs... It really is quite simple.
You can add WNW option to any tarrif, for £7.50 a month.
You can add WNW Pro to any tarrif, for £10 a month.
If you have a 12 month contract, you can change to any current 12 month new connection plan (no that does not include the discounts new customers get, while you are in contract).
If you have an 18 month contract, you can change to any current 18 month new connection plan (no that does not include the discounts new customers get, while you are in contract).
Some people seem to be having trouble changing to the WNW plan (among others) itself. This could be for a couple of reasons.
At the time of starting your contract, you will have agreed to a certain length of 'no downward migration'. This means you cannot move to a cheaper plan for a certain period into your contract. A short time ago (I do not know the date), this minimum period was changed to 6 months, regardless of contract length. If you took out your contract more than say, 3 months ago - it is likely you are subject to the previous minimum period of 11 months. If this is you, yours does not change to 6 months, you have agreed to 11.
The second reason may be that you are trying to move to a plan that is for a different contract length at new connection. For example you may have a Relax contract (12 months) and be trying to move to a Flext contract (18 months). You may be on either of the two, and trying to move to a WNW Pro plan which will be either 18 or 24 months in duration. Subject to some conditions you can change your contract to an 18 month duration from a 12 month duration by agreeing to postpone your renewal for 6 months and extend your minimum term by the same period. You cannot change duration to a 24 month contract.
Why the speed increase is important? Some of you forget in your Windows Mobile world that there is a much bigger world around you. There is a huge market beyong WM, you are a small slice of the whole pie. Networks want to deliver on demand and live TV, radio and news, music and ringtones to the millions of mobile users who would buy into the concept. It's all about entertainment and value for money, but with an effective customer service 'cherry' on top. Leading manufacturers such as Nokia, Samsung, Sony and LG are already launching media mobiles that can use the network improvements to their maximum. These companies produce the 'must have' mobiles that will sell millions of units year in year out. The networks do care about our needs, but you have to understand why they are not the number one priority, and release dates are often sketchy.
All I know is that the second the Vario II (or whatever someone may call it
) is released, one will be en route Special Delivery to me in the blink of an eye.
I might even get 2, one for the bathroom also.
